Letter of 3 September 1936

3 September 1936
Beloved Bahá’í Brother,
Your welcome letter of August 7th together with the enclosed programme of the English Bahá’í Summer School and Mrs. Bishop’s notes on the Bahá’í session of the World Fellowship of Faiths Congress have all duly arrived and been read with sustained interest and deepest appreciation by our beloved Guardian.
He has been particularly pleased to read Mrs. Bishop’s report which is truly illuminating and highly encouraging. The Cause has no doubt been well represented at the Congress, and the attendants must have surely been deeply impressed by the manner in which the Message was introduced and presented by both the Bahá’í and non-Bahá’í speakers.
The Guardian feels particularly grateful for the share which your N.S.A., as well as your distinguished and able co-workers Mrs. Bishop and Madame Orlova have contributed towards the success of the Bahá’í meeting. May the noble efforts which you all have so unitedly and so successfully exerted in this connection serve to attract, even as a magnet, the blessings of God and His favours upon the entire community of the believers throughout the British Isles.
With every good wish and hearty greetings to you, and to your fellow-members in the N.S.A….
[From the Guardian:]
Dearest co-workers,
I rejoice to learn of the splendid work that has recently been achieved. Your accomplishments should spur you on to achieve still greater results in both the teaching and administrative spheres of Bahá’í service. My prayers will be offered on your behalf. The work in which you are so devotedly engaged is near and dear to my heart. Persevere and never feel disheartened.
